Call a monkey

mosquito sucking blood

Powaqqatsi is an Uto-Aztecan word from the language of the Hopi people of northeastern Arizona, for a parasitic spirit that draws sustenance from human life. Powaqqatsi: Life in Transformation was an experimental Godfrey Reggio film portraying, in vivid imagery, lives ebbing away from the sheer drudgery of day-to-day work, mainly in third-world countries, as if possessed by the spirit of Powaqqatsi.

The earth is inhabited by another spirit that saps the life-blood of nations with a voracious appetite – a parasitic spirit from the realm of Powaqqatsi. It pervades the halls of governments, national institutions and global organisations, wreathing its way into the minds of rulers, destroying their ability to function normally. Afflicting, haunting and mentally encumbering them with the debilitating power of a Powaqqatsi kindred spirit, deceiving and deluding its victims into believing its illusions and whisperings.

This insidious parasitic spirit changes name and guise in bewildering transformations that defy efforts to subdue it and break its iron grip on leaders and followers, rich and poor, slave and free. It demands sacrifice and subjugation, obedience and oblation, ritual and reparation, but it is never satisfied. There is always another demand to be satisfied.

The world’s leaders know their lives are at the behest of the spirit. They resent its power over them and desperately seek the elixir that will free them from subservience to it. They consult their advisers, but to no avail. The spirit inhibits the faculties of leaders and advisers alike, capturing reason.

But not everyone has fallen for the wiles of the parasite spirit. Some have discovered the key that unshackles minds from subjection to it: a simple application of human intuition and observation, combined with techniques of measurement and calculation, some of which are so simple that “even a monkey can do it”. There’s Marcel, Tweeter, Watts and Copeland, SOI past and present; monkey means, providing the sought-after antidote to the evil spirit of foolishness that has beset our world, sucking sense from otherwise sensible people.

So help is at hand for those who labour under the hypnosis of Powaqqatsi’s pal.

I called the number but got a voicemail message (really!)

Very Kafkaesque article; entirely capturing the zeitgeist.

I’m surprised you didn’t get through – it’s not as if they are overburdened with work.

Greenhouse effect and climate change: a resource document for New Zealand MPs Parliamentary support, Research papers 2001/09 4 September 2001 Introduction The Government has announced its intention to ratify the Kyoto Protocol by September 2002. This will require passage of appropriate legislation. To assist Members in familiarising themselves with the international and local background on this issue, the Parliamentary Library has prepared a detailed paper, available to all Members and support staff on request. This note provides the executive summary from the paper, and a summary of its contents. • The “greenhouse effect” is a natural phenomenon in which certain gases in the lower atmosphere prevent some of the heat energy radiated from the Earth from escaping. The human-caused emissions of greenhouse gases (CO2, methane, nitrous oxide, and some industrial gases) have over the last few centuries added to this effect, making global temperatures warmer than they would otherwise be and affecting global weather patterns. • The hole in the ozone layer is a separate phenomenon, but there are a few linkages with the greenhouse effect. For example, some gases which deplete ozone in the upper atmosphere (CFCs) also act as greenhouse gases… Read more »

I don’t think Piers Corban uses monkey means specifically but he’s beating the UK Met Office hands down with an approach similar to Daly/Leyland. ——————————————————————————————————————— Piers Corbyn: Sky News Report WeatherAction – We Told You So! December Warnings. Saturday, December 18th 2010, 7:09 PM EST – Climate Realists Piers Corbyn was interviewed on Sky News on 18 Dec about 5.45pm. They reported on the recent blizzards and supercold weather and said to Mr Corbyn – So it’s a case of “We told you so Isn’t it?” and asked “What else is to come?” Piers said “Yes” and that his forecast for a snowy December was first made without detail in May and the full detail for an Extremely Cold and exceptionally snowy December which would probably be the coldest in 100 years was spelt out on 29th November; and held up the forecast. He said that “Standard meteorology doesn’t know what is hitting them this winter. These spells of very cold weather with snow and blizzards will go on and on and on this winter, including through the Xmas period and into January. Standard forecasts will continue to underestimate the severity of events… Read more »

“Daly/Leyland” AND McClean/DeFreitas/Carter/Watts/Copeland/Holtom/Stockwell – to give credit where it’s due.

I see Bryan Leyland is confidant the SOI monkey will deliver.

He’s made this bet with you know who at you know where.

“The Mayor of London gives props to skeptic Piers Corbyn” – WUWT “The man who repeatedly beats the Met Office at its own game” – UK Telegraph by Boris Johnson Excerpts “Why did the Met Office forecast a “mild winter”?” “Is it really true that no one saw this coming? Actually, they did. Allow me to introduce readers to Piers Corbyn, meteorologist and brother of my old chum, bearded leftie MP Jeremy. Piers Corbyn works in an undistinguished office in Borough High Street. He has no telescope or supercomputer. Armed only with a laptop, huge quantities of publicly available data and a first-class degree in astrophysics, he gets it right again and again.” “He seems to get it right about 85 per cent of the time and serious business people – notably in farming – are starting to invest in his forecasts. In the eyes of many punters, he puts the taxpayer-funded Met Office to shame. How on earth does he do it? He studies the Sun.” “The question is whether anthropogenic global warming is the exclusive or dominant fact that determines our climate, or whether Corbyn is also right to… Read more »

Willis Eschenbach called a monkey (Bozo) So did Lucia. ———————————————————————————————————————- Model Charged with Excessive Use of Forcing Posted on December 19, 2010 by Willis Eschenbach – WUWT [Snip] There are several surprising things in Figure 3, and I’m not sure I see all of the implications of those things yet. The first surprise was how close the model results are to a bozo simple linear response to the forcings plus the passage of time (R^2 = 0.91, average error less than a tenth of a degree). Foolish me, I had the idea that somehow the models were producing some kind of more sophisticated, complex, lagged, non-linear response to the forcings than that. This almost completely linear response of the GISSE model makes it trivially easy to create IPCC style “scenarios” of the next hundred years of the climate. We just use our magic GISSE formula, that future temperature change is equal to 0.13 times the forcing change plus a quarter of a degree per century, and we can forecast the temperature change corresponding to any combination of projected future forcings … Second, this analysis strongly suggests that in the absence of any change… Read more »
